Level 3 Stylist
Where did you learn to do hair and what was your favorite memory?
I went to the Aveda Institute in Portland. While I was in school I had the opportunity to do hair and makeup for two fashion shows and a professional photo shoot, it was so much fun to jump outside the box and do some wild and crazy styles!
You trained under Toni Mosley here at Annastasia Salon. What is the most important thing you took away from that training?
It was amazing to work side by side with someone who has had as much experience in the industry as Toni, I learned so much from her that it's hard to name just one thing! I would have to say she taught me to really take care of a guest, not just by giving them a great cut or color but helping them feel comfortable and relaxed in the salon. That's really what it's all about!
What is your favorite part of doing hair?
I love the instant gratification that I get from giving my guests a fresh look. There is something so rewarding about seeing a guest so happy with what they see in the mirror. I feel very lucky that this is what I get to do when I come to work everyday.
Where did you grow up and what do you do for fun?
I'm a native Oregonian! I grew up playing tons of sports and I love getting outside to go camping, wake boarding, 4 wheeling, shooting, and snow boarding! Oregon offers so many adventures to go out and enjoy.
What do you do to relax?
I love to cook and bake for friends and family. Some of my favorite nights are lounging on the couch watching funny movies, like my favorite Dumb and Dumber...we have to stay young!
